If you are an app developer and have been curious about working on this new platform called Windows 8, you might want to check out a recent blog post from Microsoft developer evangelist Jennifer Marsman. The post has a number of links to official Microsoft resources that give hints to developers who want to port their existing applications and websites to Windows 8.
Marsman says in the post:
I’ve talked to many developers who are excited about Metro app development, but say that the hardest part is coming up with an app idea. Some folks want to walk through converting an existing app to Metro as a learning exercise. There are other folks who have very successful websites or apps that they would like to make available on Windows 8 too.
The links include hints about porting the design of an iPad app to Windows 8, along with porting the design of an existing website to the new OS. In the latter resource link, Microsoft uses a fictional food truck website as an example of how to port the design to work in Windows 8's Metro touch screen interface. The blog also has links to migrate the programming of a web app and a website to Windows 8.
